This exhibition of forty French and American paintings represents some of the finest examples of late nineteenth and early twentieth-century landscapes in the renowned collection of the Brooklyn Museum.
The earliest works in the exhibition, dating from the 1850s and 1860s, demonstrate the impact of progressive, plein-air sketching practices on French landscape painting. They include important imagery by Barbizon and Realist painters, such as Charles François Daubigny, Henri-Joseph Harpignies and Gustave Courbet.
